In eBook publishing a reader reads prefers a well formatted book for better reading experience. They use ePub format for the devices like iPad, Sony Reader, Nook and Mobi format for Kindle devices. ePub has some outstanding features like content flows according to the resolution of the devices, embedding audio/video. It includes complex tables, images and the text.

But what about Comic books? When it comes to Comic books, illustrations generally fits to the whole page of the book, but when it comes to eBook we had to break the images into two separate images to adjust according to the size of eBook device screen.

Apple has created a “Fixed layout format for iPad”, which fulfills the requirement of Comic books and other books where illustration need to fit to the device screen.

Productions of Apple’s fixed layout format is little complex than the general eBook formatting services.
